With this intel secure, the USS Valkyrie sets a course for Shanghai. You and Tombstone squad are sent on a covert mission into the city to extract a group of VIP’s. China is in uproar after the U.S. has been implicated in the assassination of Jin Jié, the future leader and voice for peace in China. Admiral Chang has canceled elections and martial law has been declared. As U.S. and Russian naval forces position themselves off the coast of China, and the situation quickly escalates into a stare down akin to a tinderbox waiting for a spark.
In Shanghai, protestors clash with police as the streets are filled with chaos and turmoil. Tombstone manages to find the VIP’s, among them a CIA field operative known as Laszlo W. Kovic. With him is a mysterious individual that the Chinese military has been franticly searching for. Together with Kovic you fight your way out of Shanghai and back to the Valkyrie as countless civilians flee the city, many of which are brought aboard the Valkyrie as refugees. With communications dead, the Valkyrie sets course for Singapore to rendezvous with the USS Titan and the 7th US carrier group at their last known position. As you reach Singapore you are shocked to find a horrific scene of fire and mayhem. The flagship is sunk and its fleet is eradicated, and from this point on nothing is certain.

A Battlefield 4 novel written by author Peter Grimsdale, a multi-award-winning television producer with a raft of major documentaries to his credit, is in the works providing a back story to Battlefield 4's campaign. The description of the novel gives us an idea of what the battlefield 4 story will be about. The description is as follows:
"Stationed in Shanghai, Kovic is the sort of field man the CIA doesn’t have enough of. He’s a chameleon, fluent in language and manners, the sort who can disappear in any crowd, but when called upon can do what has to be done with force and cunning.His bosses are wary of him, just as they are wary of the Chinese.How has he survived this long in Shanghai? Has he been turned? When a joint US-Chinese mission to North Korea goes horribly awry and his entire team is killed, Kovic is under suspicion from both sides. How is he the only survivor?"
But Kovic is about to uncover a conspiracy theory that will make him everyone’s enemy. A World-threatening situation that forces him to go rogue and play by his own rules. Admiral Chang wants to turn back the Chinese clock and put the military in charge – under him. But first he must make an enemy of America. And Kovic will find he’s an unlikely pawn in Chang’s master plan.
Huang Shuyi "Hannah", a rising star in the Ministry of State Security, has her own suspicions about America, but her patriotism will force her into making desperate choices for the sake of China's future - choices that could cast her as a traitor. With time running out, and with nobody heeding his warnings, Kovic must find a way to thwart Chang's master plan and prevent a devastating stand-off between two of the World's most powerful nations.
